84: Is Bedrock Edition holding Minecraft Back?

Should Minecraft be a lot further on than it is, in terms of development of quality of life features, new mobs, blocks and items?

Episode Hosts

In this episode, Foxy and Slack discuss the Mob Vote including how terrible it is for the community and how much of a negative impact it must have on the actual developers at Mojang. They also discuss how Modded Minecraft is setting such a high bar for the Vanilla game, and realistically, in 10 years, Minecraft really hasn't progressed much.
